Holy crap! Daily Mail reports that a 17 year old boy passed out on railroad tracks in Iowa, and somehow got away with only a few cuts and bruises after a freight train ran over him.
The guy admitted to have been drinking heavily at a local music concert, and only woke up as the train was passing over him. That’s not terrifying or anything.
Conductors on the train said they were moving at full speed when they saw something in between the tracks. They pulled the brakes as soon as they realized it was a person, but the front car still ran over the young man. Although he survived, he may be charged with public intoxication, and drinking as a minor.
How stupid is he? I wonder if he’ll ever get that drunk again?
